February 5th was the well known and well loved Miss Fulton County Pageant =)It was the 40th anniversary and a really special year! Heather Shaffer was Miss Fulton County 2o1o and did an outstanding job representing the Miss Fulton County organization throughout the year and at the state level =) It was a great learning experience as always and the friendships formed among the other girls is irreplaceable. I am always so excited to compete with these confident and talented individuals and this year was no different! The dress rehearsal was a blast as usual. Even though we were there for 8 hours the time goes by so fast because "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" haha and we make it that way. The opening number was to the song "Telephone" by the amazing Lady GaGa! We were some foxy ladies strutting out stuff in our silver dresses!
For the Miss Fulton County Pageant we are assigned amazing hostesses who are always so helpful. Every year they manage to leave us with great memories and permanant imprints on our hearts. I know mine did! They are assigned with the sometimes grueling tasks of making sure our swimsuits dont ride up and helping us with wardrobe malfunctions LOL My hostess was Jessica Fliegal Fielding and she put everything she had into making sure I had everything I needed to compete to the best of my ability. Thanks Jess! Im so glad to have your friendship! love you <3
The competition categories were well organized and it was very easy being a contestant. Onstage question was nerve racking as always but it is important to remember that you are intelligent and its about having an opinion. My question happened to be my opinion on who was one of the most popular people in the world. I loved it =P
Although I LOVE being onstage and showing em what Ive got on the stage, one of the best parts of competing is the unforgettable memories you gain just from being backstage! lol Every one of us has a different but fun personality. We are always there for eachother and we always help eachother when someone needs it. I think if there was a point to be added to the crown it should be "sisterhood" because thats definitely what we have developed over the years. I love you girls!
and finally the winners were announced! Colleen Gagne, Misty Lynn Hilts, and Kieren Sheridan tied for Miss Congeniality. =)
Amanda Boyer won BOTH talent and interview and was also placed in the standing of 2nd runner up! you go girl love youu<3
I took first runner up, and our Miss Fulton County 2011 is Kieren Sheridan! Good luck this year kieren love you!
